Salam, I'm Zaid, an aspiring product designer inspired by language and culture.

I'm currently at UC Berkeley studying Cognitive Science and South Asian Studies, set to graduate in May 2022.

At Berkeley, I've been involved with the Muslim Student Association, the Middle Eastern-North African Recruitment & Retention Center, and Berkeley Innovation, a human-centered design consultancy.

Although my design journey has taken me everywhere from Oakland truck stops to Yasiin Bey concerts, I'm most comfortable designing consumer media experiences. In summer 2020, I will join Apple as a Product Design Intern in the Apple Media Products division.

I've had the privilege of growing as a designer through the following experiences:
